Saw a bunch of treads on the 40 today.

Deflate them and 1/2 the miles you actually need. Keep them at 80#’s at 110 degrees. Not very many. :D

Seriously? However far it is to West Marine where you can pick up a new set of wheels/tires!

Unless you like leaving your trailer (and whatever is sitting on it) out in the middle of nowhere at some point so you can go in search of a spare and hope your trailer is still there when you get back. Don't chance it. Vacations/trips are supposed to be fun, not aggravating because you didn't fix something before you left.

It’s humor, Im Joking fella. I just bought this thing and noticed the tires had an 06 date code. Called my wife to make an appointment at discount tire and 2 minutes later this tire blew up. I just laughed as I knew it was going to happen. I just didn’t think it would be within the first 4 miles.

I started changing my tires every 5 years instead of going by what the treads looked like, I'd go off the date on the tire like you did. Carlisles were doing that to me right & left years back. It's like they had a self destruct mechanism detonate at 5 years.

yep. I’ve changed more trailer tires over the years than I can count. I’m like a dam nascar pit crew I’m so good at it. I always carry a jack, impact etc in the truck. These trailer tires are junk so I’m like you and I just change them way before they need it.
